Brightway Insurance Opens First Missouri Store

Insurance Retailer Continues National Franchise Expansion

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) February 04, 2014 - Brightway Insurance, a leading national independent insurance retailer, recently opened its first Missouri store.

Associate agency owner Gary Silverman opened the 125 Long Rd. Ste. C location in Chesterfield. With his new store, Silverman, 43, will provide consumers with a variety of reliable insurance carrier choices and give local consumer access to Brightway’s unique insurance experience. He and his agents will receive assistance through Brightway’s back office support.

Brightway plans to open 20 Missouri stores in the next five years. Aside from the greater St. Louis area, additional cities in Missouri that Brightway seeks additional expansion include Kansas City and Springfield.

"I am lucky to open Missouri’s first Brightway Insurance store," said Silverman, a St. Louis native. "There aren’t many people who can say they opened the first store in a state."

Chesterfield and St. Louis area residents now have more than 100 high-quality insurance carriers available through Brightway’s powerful insurance network."

Silverman attended the University of Missouri and majored in business administration. He previously owned Insurance Solutions of Missouri for two years before taking this new position with a focus on life and health insurance. He chose to invest in Brightway because of its shared vision on how to operate an efficient property and casualty independent insurance agency with customer-focused service centers.

"Gary is a welcomed addition to Brightway, its emerging growth in Missouri and its overall nationwide expansion," said Brightway Insurance President Talman Howard.

The company is growing in multiple states: Brightway opened its first stores in North Carolina and Kentucky in fourth-quarter 2013. It plans to earn its licensing in nearly all 50 states by July 2014.
